Do you enjoy working with your hands? Can you drive a forklift?
We have general warehouse positions in our millwork distribution center and our building material branches. From there we have advancement opportunities as forklift drivers and mechanics, team leads, and management.
I have worked for DW Distribution for going on seven years now. I’m grateful for the opportunities given me by the company and the trust the Potter family has in me to manage the part of the business entrusted to my team. During my time at DW I’ve had the privilege to work with and for some outstanding individuals. My transition from large companies to a family owned business has been a blessing for my family and me. The leaders have always supported me and provided good guidance and advice as my career and skills have advanced forward. When I started, my goal was to find a position that would challenge me professionally, keep me busy, celebrate achievements and keep my wanting to get up each morning to come and work. After nearly seven years here that goal is still intact, and I’m looking forward to both the company and myself achieving great things in the future.
I’ve worked at DW Distribution for over 7 years. In this time, I’ve had the privilege of learning about the Door and Moulding business – loading and unloading flatbeds and box trucks, how to pick and package doors, hardware and glass inserts. I’ve gained a lot of knowledge on products that I didn’t even know existed before I came to DW. I also learned on how to lead people to make themselves and the company better. I’ve met a lot of great people while working here at DW. In the past 2 years I’ve gotten the opportunity to engage with our purchasing department and it has been the most pleasant opportunity. The management in my time here at DW has been great they have treated me with respect.
In May of 1988 I came to work for Dallas Wholesale Builders Supply Inc. which we now call DW Distribution. I have worked in many different departments such as Shipping and Receiving, Will Call, Door Shop (lead position), Moulding, Millwork Sales, DDF sales, Nightshift, Building Materials, Displays and so on. I have learned so many awesome things through the years and I’m still learning to this day. I have worked with lot of very talented folks. I have seen the company continue to grow and succeed through the years DW has been very good to me; I count myself very fortunate to be a part of such a wonderful company.
I have worked for DW Distribution for over 18 years and the employees are like one big family. Management is supportive of your career development and personal goals and wants to help you achieve them. Your input and feedback for improvements is requested and listened to. The benefits package can’t be beat: from generous paid time off, health insurance with great coverage, matching 401K, the list goes on. I am happy to be a team member at such a great family oriented company.
